My expectation is that the RFC process will still freeze while
Larry is examining the ~350+ submissions to date.  There's going to
be plenty to discuss when he comes out with the draft language design,
so it's not going to be like there's nothing to be done after 10/1.

I'd like to take advantage of the 2-week RFC freeze to focus on the
process we set up for the first two months of Perl6.  That way, we can
start talking about more procedural issues, like what happens when someone
comes up with v1 of an RFC but abandons it for 7 weeks.  Does it become
"Status: Dormant"?

Or is it enough of an improvement over the p5p process to have a
synopsis and a clear thread of discussion to start examining?  
"Go check last year's archives for this discussion" isn't as difficult
with p6 as it has been with p5p.

Ditto.  :-)
